IMO this is not a "hero-killing" game, this is a battle game where heroes die sometimes. The difference? The approach to the game. If u want a fragfest then ofc the lady doesnt fit. If u, however, look at the game as an epic, mystical battle in a fantasy world, then maybe it's not that bad.
Now, personally I really dont like the new announcer, the previous one was so much better IMO. However, I think if this was to at least be map-dependant, or an option for players to select/turn off, it'd be much better overall.
